IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 28 August 2015 Issued at 11:00 pm EST Friday on 28 August 2015 A weakening frontal system is slipping to the south of WA and patchy cloud through inland parts of the state is associated with a trough. Another, stronger front is approaching from the west. A broad mass of patchy cloud across the Northern Territory and Queensland is due to an upper level disturbance and links to a frontal cloud band over the Tasman Sea. A small low is moving up the east coast of Tasmania bringing patchy low and middle level cloud to much of the state. Patchy cloud can also be seen over parts of southeastern Australia within a broad southerly airflow.
